Hello Everyone! It’s been six months since I started the Bible Art Journaling Challenge and my Bible is filling up with fun art and memories with God, and all of you! I’ve been asked several times to share a flip through of my Bible art journaling. Today, I’m sharing. Why? This week I’ve hit the amount of subscribers I wildly asked God for by the end of 2015, in six months!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to lesson 1 of The Beginning! In this series of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge we’re getting the start we’ve always needed. Throughout the series, we’re looking at key scriptures in the Bible story, while focusing on a select few supplies which any beginner can gain confidence with. If you feel less like a beginner, you’ll enjoy all the refreshers and some new insights. In this lesson of The Beginning Bible Art Journaling Challenge, I’ll be sharing simple colored pencil tracing for Bible art journaling with a look at our first of 6 sections of scripture which help us tie the Bible story together.
I’ll leave you with a bit of mystery just because I can. You’ll just have to keep coming back to see where I’m taking us! By the time we finish with lesson 6, you’ll be able to look back and see the Bible in a fresh way with some new understanding. You’ll also be more confident in stepping out creatively, which means you’ll then be ready to move on from The Beginning to even bigger Bible art journaling things! Let’s buckle up for some creative fun as we study the Bible story together!
What is Bible Art Journaling?
As we start, let me quickly explain Bible art journaling in case you’re new to this. Bible art journaling (as well as Bible journaling), are terms both now widely recognized as a process of making a meaningful and respectful record directly on the pages of a Journaling Bible, with some form of artistic, creative, or crafty expression.
The goal should be to

When I first started Bible art journaling, I soon realized what everyone does… I have A LOT to learn. Bible art journaling mistakes abounded. Of course, we all have a lot to learn about God, His Word and His ways. And that is what the focus of Bible art journaling is. But in this post, I’m just keeping it super practical.
The questions came at me from all sides. “How do I avoid bleed through in my journaling Bible?” “Which art supplies are prone to bleed through?” “Which art supplies are less archival?” “Which art supplies should never be used in a Bible?” “How do I layer lots of color in my Bible, without it bleeding through to the back of my Bible page?” “How do I make sure that my Bible art journaling is always transparent?” “Which pens are best to use in my Bible?” And on, and on, and on… the questions go.
Thankfully my [click to continue…]

My grandma told me a beautiful story recently. She’s been a missionary in Mexico for over 60 years. When I was growing up, my grandparents would come back to the States and be with family, tend a beautiful garden and rest, before going back and serving. The ministry has been responsible for helping 3 generations of people find Jesus, who were previously unreached in the Cora mountain villages. I have always loved hearing the incredible stories of people learning about Jesus and then growing up to help spread His truth. I feel grateful for such a heritage in my family that continues to this day.
Anyway, my grandma told me a story about how she had enjoyed these beautiful flowers and wanted to plant some to be enjoyed at the ministry base in Mexico. She took some seeds with her and planted them. When the heat came, the plants couldn’t stand the temperatures and within a short time they had all died. Just like her determined missionary self, she decided to investigate if there was another way these plants might be able to withstand the heat. She found a way and went to work planting all of the seeds in a cooler climate. Then, when the plants were more mature, she took cuttings from them and brought them with her to Mexico to plant. Those cuttings then grew up to become plants that are hearty, able to withstand heat and bloom almost year round!
Now, there are a ton of life messages this true story could be applied to. For me, it speaks to [click to continue…]
